Coron is a group of islands in the province of Palawan. Surrounded by many islands Coron Bay reminds one of the scenes from Halong Bay in Thailand.
Hailed by many as the Truk Lagoon of Asia; Coron's bay has a good number of Japanese wrecks all sunk in an American WWII offensive called Desecrate One. These wrecks offer an assortment of marine life and a wide variety of Macro life that Duane Silverstein director of Seacology called it "Wruck" diving.
This well rounded destination also offers the country's only Dugong encounters.
As a whole Coron is and all around experience for Divers and non-divers alike.
